Where can I hold my celebrant ceremony?
The answer to this question is only restricted by your imagination. It does not have to be licensed or approved (you may need to have the landowners permission). You may hold your bespoke and unique ceremony on the beach, at home, in a marquee, in a village hall or social club, at a beautiful woodland, on top of a headland, travelling on a steam train or boat, on an Island, at home, in a field (may be have festival themed wedding).
